Research

 

My interests revolve around real time rendering of biomedical imaging data and neurosurgical applications. I currently work on the development of new interactive visualization methods to display diffusion and functional magnetic resonance imaging (dMRI, fMRI) data. I am also the main developer of the Fibernavigator, a tool designed for the real-time visualization of tractography.
